Upset residents, elected officials and executives with the Pepco power company continued their debate over how to prevent frequent and prolonged power outages in the area while still keeping their communities green.
Prince George's County task force members commissioned by Pepco to get recommendations on how to improve electric service met at the College Park Town Hall on Wednesday. Another meeting is scheduled for early June in the Fort Washington area.
For more than a year, the company has faced intense criticism for leaving hundreds of thousands of residents without power for days after bad weather. Major outages occurred during a heavy snowstorm in January and throughout last summer after intense, windy showers.
